Storyline

Having solved the riddles put before them, Col. Mitchell manages to pull the sword from the stone and must fight a holographic knight in shining armor and with that - once they make amends for Vala's light fingers - the treasure appears. Daniel finds new information about the Ancients who have also been known as Alterans, Ancients who may not have ascended. Using the Ancients communications stones, Daniel and Vala find their consciousness transported across the universe where they occupy the bodies of a man and woman living in a medieval society. The locals worship the Ori, a religious cult that now learns of human existence. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

This is the second episode to feature only two members of the original cast: Michael Shanks (Daniel Jackson) and Christopher Judge (Teal'c). The first being _"Stargate SG-1" (1997) {Prometheus Unbound (#8.12)_. See more »

Goofs

We see Vala completely engulfed by flames, head to toe, for several seconds. In the next shot, Daniel caresses her mane of raven hair (which barely looks like it has split ends, let alone frizzy or, as would be the case, burnt off). See more »

Quotes

Dr. Daniel Jackson: Isn't that why we're doing this, all of this? The Stargate program, the budget? Isn't so we can go out and meet new races, gather advanced technology, possibly learn about ourselves in the process?
Vala Mal Doran: Oh, come on. You do it to meet women.
Lt. Colonel Cameron Mitchell: She has a point, sir.
Major General Hank Landry: I've been thinking I need to get out on an off-world mission or two.

Stargate taken over by Farscape
19 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

When it started I had an open mind about Richard Dean Anderson being replaced by Bill Browder and with the "special appearance" of Claudia Black. May I add that I enjoyed Farscape and that I bought the whole series but towards the end (seasons 3 & 4) it began to go "a bit loony". It appears to me that Stargate season 10 is "going loony" too. I don't like Bill Browder's "swagger" - he seems to play a far less professional role than did Richard Dean A. - not very logical in such a situation. Claudia Black has none of the femininity nor the character of Amanda Tapping. She has no "pazzaz" - shame.

Beau Bridges, too, isn't at all "in his place" - it's hard to believe that his "character" would be put in charge of such a project - or are US generals like that? - nothing like Norman Schwarzkopf.

Let's see how the other episodes go (over this side of the Atlantic) but it looks like it's off to a bad start.
